About This Class

The protagonist has been created, maybe the character is even the main reason for writing this book or short story. Then, writing the second doesn't seem too bad. But, then you need more characters, and it's getting a little harder. And wait, you've reached chapter 6, and they are all starting too look a little too similar, maybe even starting to look a little too much like the writer.

That's where this class comes in, it hopes to help you be able to better define characters, help with thinking up characters, as well as aid in keeping those characters distinct.
